I have had a string of really good days…
For one, this little piece of awesome from Plaid Pigeon arrived in the mail today. How could you not love a plastic dinosaur with a succulent growing out of his back?
And finally, this past weekend I went to an Elmer’s Craft and Tell party at the house of Katie from Sweet Rose Studio, with a few other local bloggers. Katie is a great hostess and the tables she set up for crafting were adorable.
Elmer’s provided us with a bunch of products for each crafter to take home. There were Glue Spots, scissors, an X-acto knife, a cutting mat, gel pens, glue sticks and other cool Elmer’s products to use. I made a candy themed picture frame for the sparkletots’ room.
I started by painting an unfinished wood picture frame yellow, then I made accordion rosettes out of scrapbook paper as candy and placed Glue Spots covered in glitter in the middle. I had forgotten to get vellum, so I used waxed paper, which I folded in to an accordion and put those under the rosettes to look like candy wrappers. Then I stuck on some glittery stickers to say “sweet as candy.” Super easy.
